You have several options available to you for resolution. Check your contract with these parents and give notice of nonpayment as required by the contract and make sure that complies with state law. Contact the agency that licenses you for day care services (or if you are exempt, contact the city or state taxing authority) and see if you can obtain a direct garnishment of tax refunds owing to these people. If that is not an option in your state, check with the Internal Revenue Services (IRS) and see if you can attach a tax refund garnishment directly or if you now need to begin the process of suing in small claims court (if the amount is under the cap allowed in your state) or in superior or district court if the amount is over the cap.

The attorney providing the answer was not serving as the attorney for the person submitting the question or in any attorney-client relationship with such person. Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
